with that as still being the time to leave? when the pentagon announced the end of the surge last week, when they announced the surge was over, they talked less about blunting taliban momentum and more about how the surge helped us train lots of afghan security foes. in tory,ots ra anury forces is a way afghanistan could get more safe. but right now it's also a way americans get killed. by the afghans we are training and arming. afghan troops arturning around and killing american troops they'rsupposed to be working with at such a rate now that t traing a joint operation eee fo w halted this month. and have only now started to scale back up. that's the circumstances in which 68,000 americans are putting eir lives on the line right now while you watch this tv show. 68,000. there is a debate to have here about what we are doing afann. things are worse after the surge than they were before the surge. what was the surge for? why does the deadline for leaving stay the same if the surge was supposed to make things bter and it didn't? if the republicans had picked a candidate who was capable of enga
was the undersecretary of defense for policy at the pentagon. she was in the situation room with the president during the bin laden mission. now, michele i want to ask you this, because, the president of iran, mr. ahmadinejad, speaks today. but your former boss spoke yesterday. some people still slamming him for not taking a hard enough line on iran. listen to what "the wall street journal" said. they said, in his u.n. speech tuesday, president obama took a tougher than usual election-season line against iran. the cold reality is, that after nearly four years of failed diplomacy and half hearted sanctions that he opposed until congress forced his hand, neither iran nor israel believe him. essentially saying actions speak louder than words. your reaction? >> i think that actions do speak louder than words. and if you look at the record of the president, he has led the international community in posing the most crippling sanctions ever imposed on any country. he has said that all options are on the table. i can tell you from my time in the pentagon that option is very real. it is important that we give
. national security correspondent jennifer griffin has the details from the pentagon. how seriously did the u.s. military take these peace talks with the taliban. >> not very. this was essentially a state-department-led idea from with some backing from the white house and the president's national security advisers over at the white house when richard holbrooke was still alive as ambassador and envoy to pakistan he backed the idea because many military commander's believed you could not shoot yourself out of this war, out of the war in afghanistan. the pentagon also never believed that they could negotiate he with elements loyal to mullah omar or the a cane the aquani network. the pentago taliban doesn't specialize in talking but in shooting. they were willing to give it a chance but they didn't really believe, many of the generals i've spoken to that it would get off the ground. gregg: what are officials saying about where the talks are heading in. >> what weiree hearing is that the real snag came when the pentagon and also in congress there were -- the real snag is when they would not agree
-leaning publication. >> but he is. megyn: bret baier confirmed this. he covered the pentagon for years. >> megyn, it is unbelievable that in the fog of war, given everything that is going on the assertion is that she lied. i mean come on, guys. i mean, the lead guy who was there was killed. it is very volatile situation. we didn't have a lot of people in benghazi. that has been obviously well-maintained by now. and so the idea that somehow the administration purposely lied to the american people, it is ridiculous. they have, we have now know what's happened. they said that this was a terrorist attack. they understand what's fog on. they have the fbi on the ground. two of the militias have been disbanded already. tremendous progress is being made. give them time to figure it out and do what is right. i think that is the respectful thing to do here. megyn: mark, the administration was very quick to come out and say mitt romney spoke too soon on this, and campaign spokesperson for obama came out and said he shoots first and aims later which was picking up on his boss's remarks when. it comes to thi

[applause] >> thank you. >> we invite prime minister netanyahu to speak before the assembly. >> thank you. it is a pleasure to see the general assembly presided by the ambassador from israel. it is good to see all of you distinguished delegates. ladies and gentlemen, 3000 years ago king david reigned over the jewish states in at the capitol of jerusalem. i say that to all of those who proclaim that the jewish state has no roots in our region and that it will soon disappear. throughout our history, the jewish people have overcome all of the tyrants who have sought our destruction. it is their ideologies that have been discarded by history. the people of israel live on. brew, we live fo
was shot in the doorway, and the pentagon gives out the real name, mark owens. >> there's lots to talk about, lots going on. en you're also concerned about the history of islam. i know that this is something you'll be following. we appreciate you joining us today. >> just let me show you one book out of 47 that i've read in the last 11 years, i was reading this book, jihad, when the towers were struck. and if we don't teach our kids about gettysburg, iwo jima and normandy how will we teach them about battles that all of europe would be islamic if we haven't won some of these battles. it's a history problem. >> congressman, thank you so much for joining us today. we appreciate it. >> you bet. my pleasure. >> another page, a football investigation, but it's not the nfl. a pop warner football coach in orange county, california, has been allegedly suspended for paying 11-year-old players to knock out players on the opposing team. the nonprofit operation pop warner has asked the coach and league president to step down. the clock is ticking down to the first presidential debate. both candida
of the primary factors, is the fact that the pentagon, small agency within the pentagon is supposed to help service members, didn't implement a key law back in, that was passed back in 2009, that was supposed to provide greater assistance to our service members. but as you point out, there's still time, time to increase these numbers and we are doing our best to make sure that our service members are able to register and request absentee ballots and heroes note.cock, there's time, but they need to move quickly. >> clayton: why didn't the pentagon implement that key measure that would have helped. >> dave: that's a good question and obviously, there are a lot of questions that should be asked, after the election when, you know, the congressional members get back in session. right now we have to do everything in our power to make sure our service members register, request absentee ballot. go to heroes vote.org, it takes a couple of minutes and their spouses can do it, too, fill out the application online, print it off, mail it, send it in and now what, if they get in the mail by monday they s
this incident comes just three days after the pentagon lifted the ban on joint patrols. there's a news conference scheduled in kabul later this hour. earlier i spoke to ben farmer in kabul, mup reporter, and asked how unusual it is to have the news conference to soon after an incident like this. >> reporter: i think it is. these conferences are being held by the deputy commander of the entire coalition, and he is set to make a statement on what happened yesterday evening and then will answer questions. it is unusual for someone so senior to give a press conference after such an event. >> as i said, one american was killed. that marks the 2,001 military death in afghanistan for an american since the war started there nearly 11 years ago. >>> more allegations of voter registration fraud in florida. the complaints center around a company originally hired by the republican national committee. the company is called strategic allied consulting. that company did registration drives in five states, including florida. the "new york times" is reporting that suspicious registration forms have bee
these appointments the 70's but what were the big cases? essentially forced nixon out of office and the pentagon papers case they approve school busing. they ended the death penalty in the united states in 1972 and put it back in 1976 and still the most controversy decision of the mall, 1973, roe v wade says states can no longer ban abortion, it was a seven through code to opinion and the only ones were appointed by president kennedy and william rehnquist, three of the four nixon justices were in the majority and i think that tells you a lot about where the republican party was in the 1970's, 1975 william douglas stepped down and president ford nominated john paul stevens to replace him in the confirmation hearing he wasn't asked a question because it wasn't a part of the political dialogue in a way that it later became. the big issue, the big change began in 1980 with the election of ronald reagan because he brought with him to washington a very underrated figure in the recent history, some i don't think this is due as an important area and that is edwin meese because he was first an advisor an
were almost as liberal as the '60s. what with the big cases? the nixon tapes case. the pentagon cases. they approve school busing. they ended the death penalty in the united states in 1972. a letter back in 1976, and still the most controversial decision of all, 1973 roe v. wade, but said states could no longer ban abortion. it was a seven-2 up in and the only two dissenters and rove v. wade were byron white was appointed by president kennedy and william rehnquist, three of the four next justices were in the majority of will be wait and i think it shows you a lot about where the republican party was in the 1970s. 1975 when douglas stepped out and forward dominic john paul stevens to replace them. in his hearing he was not asked a single question about abortion because he was not part of a political dialogue in the way that later became. the big issue, big change began in 198 1980 that goes with the election of ronald reagan ronald reagan brought with them to washington a very underrated figure in a recent american history, somehow i don't think gets his due as an important person. tha

it reviews and authorization bill for the pentagon spending, for example. billions are authorized, but there's no transparency in the process. i also want to give my good friend and colleague to clarify the statement he made about nonprofits and their ability to pressure. >> my point is that it is really difficult. we do what we can to be relevant to what is politically as in we all play in that role. but compared to the minority switching hands in the pressure i played there, but very difficult for nonprofit to just create, so we can't create political circumstances, but we do things complementary to what they are. does that clarify which are not? >> difficult but not impossible. >> jim snyder. my question is to see you concerns the transparency congressionally sponsored event. i've been involved with about a half-dozen of them. they are incredibly valuable for nonprofits. not only are they free, that they are high prestige in great trade press doesn't apply to this particular audience, but in general to the media. >> how dare you insult my audience.

of the government of the united states of america that is worse than acquisition than the pentagon who is famous for massive waste and cost overrun is the faa? what is wrong with your procurement process and how are we going to fix it? >> as you have heard, we would have in retrospect the eram should have been structured differently. i would tell you that we got the contractors attention at the ceo level to get the changes that we needed quickly. the profile of the kind of work the faa does is high risk and sometimes it is a technological leading edge, sometimes the bleeding edge and it is that kind of project especially when it is this complex is likely to have to sit back and delay. when you take the six separate technologies that constitute nextgen in the interplay and interaction between them it is an order of magnitude more complex. that is not an excuse but it puts a premium on better project management skills and understanding the risk from the beginning and we are very much focused on that. >> mr. churn and one other question. i read something yesterday about potentially using the meridi
-- the pentagon was hit on the other side of the fourteenth street bridge by those who attacked us in our country. i lost a friend that they. i lost a law partner that day and one of the young men who had grown up with my children, went to school with him, and the family went to church with us was lost in one of the twin towers. that change america forever. i about the car had the opportunity to go back to public service i would still like to use the experience i had as an attorney general and member of congress to do what was necessary to try to ensure that those who attacked this would not succeed and we could use the tools necessary to protect us and at the same time not allow them to defeat us by having us give up our civil liberties. i have been doing that every day since i work on the issue of jobs and taxes and spending. the reason i went back to congress and the reason i hope to stay in congress is to continue to protect the american people against those who would destroy our way of life and they are still there. >> moderator: thank you. let's begin questions here. reminder to both candid
